your thoughts on it? >> the der spiegel article says espionage against the united nations took place in 2012, which i find deliciously ironic that the obama administration is spying on the united nations. here is what i think. any gathering of foreigners is a legitimate target for american espionage, unless we have agreement that precludes us from doing it. and any foreign government absent such an agreement that doesn't think we may be spying on them doesn't live in the real world. that's the way it is, doesn't
they were improperly issued and resulted in the removal of one dwelling unit without proper review under the planning code. for hearing today. >> good evening, members of the board and thank you for your time tonight, i am here representing the appellants in this appeal. i know that you have seen our brief and it contains very concise chronology of the events. and so i want to emphasize a few quick points and i think that it is best that you hear from the appellant directly and then we can answer any questions that you might have and the things that i wanted to stress are that the appellants in this case have not engaged in an active to circumvent the procedures, when they bought the property it was marketed as a two unit building with an legal third unit and it was characterized as a two unit building. so they bought it relying on the information. and the tenants that had a lease for that unit, filed the jurisdiction request and so the board did hear the underlying merit to the desired appeal and ultimately the board rejected the request. and what is important, though, is at that hearin
characterized as a two unit building. so they bought it relying on the information. and the tenants that had a lease for that unit, filed the jurisdiction request and so the board did hear the underlying merit to the desired appeal and ultimately the board rejected the request. and what is important, though, is at that hearing, it was established and determined that this building was in a 2 rh zoned space and so that it is significant and significant with that zoning that this is a two unit only building, pursuant to the permit they removed the illegal unit. and ub consequently more than a year later after all worse being compared and the recommendation to revoke the permits which we understand why it came out and i want to emphasize that it will be unjust to act on that suggestion. they have to be able to rely on the information that the city gives out just like all of the residents of the city have to rely on that i know that you have received a number of support letters, and from people in the community and emphasizing that point that i will not belabor it. >> no one was actually

. the problem is, it's all done in secret, the lesson of the united states historically, over the last century, is that if you build the surveillance system
abuse. that was the lessen of the church committee, for decades the united states government abused surveillance because nobody was looking over their shoulder to see what they were doing. they eavesdropped on martin luther king and the anti-war movement. secondly, as secret as the nsa is, we know there's serious abuse, in 2011, there was an 86-page ruling from the fisa court saying what the nsa was doing, systematically violated the constitution and the law.
concern to the united states is a bunch of blind spots and that worries them. they've had big success this is that area as well. for example, they have -- they've used very clever and creative and interesting technologies and operations to find out things they didn't know about north korea and iran. the post has agreed to withhold a lot of those details and they should be withheld because you'd be alerting the other side to what's been found and you better go move it now.
in the united states, through vigorous public debate, guided by our
violence. the united nations said today it expects all member states to respect the privacy of diplomatic communications. that came after the german magazine "der spiegel" reported the u.s. national security agency hacked into internal communications at u.n. headquarters in new york. the magazine cited documents obtained from n.s.a. leaker edward snowden. they claimed the n.s.a. also bugged the european union's
. collectively, those providers cover 75% of united states communications. the n.s.a. and the telephone companies have constructed sort of a two-step filtering system that means that the telecommunications companies do the first cut of filtering based on the guidelines that n.s.a. provide under the court order and then they pass a subset of that information to n.s.a., they
concern to the united states is
spoken the truth. he sacrificed more than the president of the united states or peter king have ever in their political careers and their american lives.
to the owners, that i had no reasons to believe that this was an illegal unit and in fact. the person who made the illegal unit were the same people that bequithed the building to the trust. there was a request. and i am a legal resident and i have all of the documentation to prove that i don't think that this is the venue which i will choose to do that. the tax records also quote three unit and in fact, when we were a realty was selling the building, i will just stop there, i think that the record... well, i think that the record will show and i am going to ask that you not allow those who choose to declare units that are legal to be illegal, act on their own without working with the planning department. and remove legal tenants like myself, and learn in the unit and appropriately and the sellbility on the second and third or fourth of june as a single family dwelling. now. >> you are out of town. >> let the record speak. >> thank you very much. >> >> is there any other public comment? please step forward. >> my name is john (inaudible) and i live at 2829 baker's street. my property i share a
they say like i was in this -- under this law, terrorist, you know uk and united states do, they have all the powers in the world to do anything they want because they
claimed earlier that there was evidence that this was a legally a three unit building time of the jurisdiction request and early on it would have been quite honestly easier to resolve all of this and i never received any evidence to my knowledge and the other documents received any evidence that this was legally a three unit building. until the end of june or early july, that it is my understanding now that that was the days before they were to issue the final inspection on the permit. but again this was all information that we can say that we have the revised three hour report that was based upon the 1970 cfc and it was dated 1971, and yesterday, i have not seen any of the underlying building permit from 1970, and i don't know... what vehicle that was but at the time, in 1970, three units would have been allowed and so there was nothing that really seemed questionable. and you know, issues like maybe... and if there was a permit subsequent to that and removed the unit but there was no evidence of this cfc. at the time if they were adding a dwelling unit and they came afte
again deals with the apartments and so with three or more units in a building becomes an apartment under the jurisdiction of the housing department and housing inspection. >> does the 3 r, when they are doing the research check the housing? >> generally, they would not search any additional records and they would ve every record that we keep is maintained in our record manage ment. and there are files in different divisions in the departments and within the department. but again, they are not considered official documents as far as our three r or our records manage. >> okay. >> and i am just trying to get to the procedure. >> yes. >> thank you. >> and again, it would be and it would be a surprise to me in terms of this document being in that suggestion of the housing pile and yet not being part of the official record. i think that again there is discrepancies to the records that we find on a regular basis. and we try to determine what is more correct and what is the most accurate information and what is the safest avenue for this occupancy? >> okay. >> do you have anything again, that is
the illegal unit. and in that permit application, the existing building and characteristics would indicate two and then the proposer two and so that would be a straight application where this is removing a unit that was not recognized based on a 3 r report. i will be happy to answer the questions regarding the 3 r, the records management division and how the documented the information and update those reports. and the particular permit here for the remove the illegal unit issued approved, and then, there was an inspection performed as a final with some notes and that, so that job was not final, and it was revoked prior to that and then we have the permit that was to redistribute the units and that was a form 8, which again, went through our process, and in a normal review and issue. and subsequently, there was a field inspection and there is quite an extensive inspection history and they issued a notice of violation, on for a deviation to the approved plans and the revision plans were submitted in this case, again, this is a case where the revision plans were not routed to planning for review.
to be available overseas at the last point of departure for the united states. we fixed that. we learned that our adversaries were moving to nonmetallic devices. we adapted our screening technology and tactics to counter that. and we learned that a single vulnerability in any part of the aviation system can make everyone connected to it vulnerable. since we don't control security at foreign airports, we have to work even more closely with international partners to raise the overall security of the system. we did that. shortly after the christmas day plot, i launched a worldwide initiative to make these needed changes in close collaboration with our strongest allies. i am proud to say that i october of 2010, this effort led to 190 countries signing onto an historic agreement to improve aviation security, standards, and technology and information sharing. i have had the chance to visit many of those countries over the past 4.5 years. 40 in all across six continents however, our work did not end there. following the 2010 air cargo threat which involved bombs hidden inside printer cartridges departin
and we have a rental stock of 2 thirds of the unit and so there is not a shortage of units and in fact we are building more units unfortunately we are often across purposes because we get caught between a situation with rent stabilization ordinance where there is a fear to eliminate them even with the merger of a single unit which goes against a very lotable projects such as this where a family is going to live there, and they are trying to accommodate their needs and create one functional unit. and a lot of this really has to do with the ordinance more than this particular situation. and so i would hope that we are able to look at this individually, and in the context of just this, because hopefully, some day in the future, the supervisors and the city family will be able to address that in a more equitable way so that it applies to all units not just older units and you know the ones before 1978 which actually need more expensive work and are harder for the people to keep the rents that are level and to be able to do the improvements that are necessary. and the other thing that i did ge
removed the unit but there was no evidence of this cfc. at the time if they were adding a dwelling unit and they came after 1955 they would be required to provide a parking space for that unit. and again we have the cfc and the 3 r report and that is what we base our decision on thank you. >> >> there are a couple of references that ened up as a single family dwelling that was allege and what is the out come. >> they filed it and that was kind of restarted in early june. and dbi, i think that we received, like the complaint on june fifth and they investigated on june 6th and determined that they had done the work beyond the scope of the per permit and they submited in late june and then maybe, that was basically to bring it back to what was my understanding to what was authorized under the previous permit that reconfigured so that there were two units in the building that the upper two units and the two flats were merged and the lower one of those was essentially relocated to the basement level and so that was my understanding to the out come of the investigation. >> it was not a
of the united states. and that overrides everything, can you imagine we talked about the jubilation, we heard about jubilation. in damascus, obviously, in iraq, russia and imagine the demoralization, not just among the rebels looking up to the sky and looking for assistance, but among all the states in the region who live on the word of the united states, jordan, saudi, kuwaitis, israel, egypt, to a large extent. and they hear a president who has no idea what he is doing and speaks about this and will take off in a couple of days and end up in sweden and moscow. all of this is happening. what the president ought to do -- i can't believe that he actually decided otherwise, look to bring it to congress tomorrow. we have reagan airport, national airport, dulles, bwi. you can use the airports. you bring in the members of congress and you have a debate for two days. and you have a resolution. you can't leave the region hanging. it looks absolutely as if the united states has chickened out. and that's the work of the president. because of the way he did this even though i think a limited attack is
be asking is what will we do? let me emphasize, president obama, we in the united states, we believe in the united nations and we have great respect for the brave inspectors who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. but as the secretary general has said again and again, the u.n. investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the u.n. investigation. they will only affirm whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the u.n. can't tell us anything we haven't shared with you this afternoon or that we don't already know. and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism through any action through the u.n. security council the u.n. cannot galvanize the world to act as it should. let me be clear, we will continue talking to the congress, talking to our allies and most importantly, talking to the american people. president obama will ensure that the united states of america makes our own decisions on our own time lines based on our values and our interests. now, we know that after a decade of
>>> i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to our special coverage this hour of the crisis in syria. president obama's about to make a major statement when it comes to syria. we expect him to be in the white house rose garden. there you see live picture frs the rose garden in about 15 minutes or so. we're told the statement will not necessarily suggest an imminent u.s. military strike, but rather an update about his decisions on how to proceed in syria. he's been meeting all morning with his top national security advisers at the white house. all this came earlier in the day, the signals were clearly there, even yesterday, officials started arriving at the white house today to go in the situation room, including the vice president, the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, the secretary of state, john kerry. the national security adviser to the president. the top military commanders as well. they've been meeting in the white house. there you see general martin dempsey. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. there's a
? >> i am with the associated architects. within the dwelling units, which are not air-conditioned, the concrete ceiling is typically exposed. in most public areas, which may be heated and cooled with forced air, that is where you get the dropped ceiling. also, corridors and public areas. >> the dwelling units do not have air-conditioning? >> they do not. they have heating but not air conditioning. >> do they have outside air? >> absolutely, they have windows and they also have a system called z-duct, which provides for a share even when the windows are closed. >> one of the reasons they have the systems, ever since 1974, chapter 12-day of the building code requires that you have sound transmission isolation between dwelling units so they cannot hear their neighbors, and between the residential units and the cars at outside. that specifically says that if you are in one of these noise areas, which are on the transit corridor, that you must design the building such that you can ventilate the resident units with the windows closed, meeting all the noise control requiremen
that is starting to track the unit as they go to the market as we are seeing the beginning of the exchanges would be helpful for us to understand in the more comprehensive way as we are starting to really very, very aggressively put the new housing projects in many of these areas which traditionally have a different type of area and i think that it is our responsibility and it would inform us in being otherwise. >> okay. >> commissioners there is a... >> commissioner antonini. >> i just wanted to say that i am in agreement with that and i think that there is nothing wrong with getting those things and i think that is a good suggestion, but to the comments that were made earlier, we always want to try to have the diversity and we don't want to have the people with the same income levels on only part of the city and if there is a market rate unit going in there and there is nothing wrong with that. and we had a low income unit going into a market rate area. which we have tried to do with a lot of our projects where we have asked, on site affordable and affordable in the area. >> the comment i made
